Samas Agricola Punica IGT Isola dei Nuraghi

Samas Agricola Punica IGT Isola dei Nuraghi is incredibly fresh and zesty and is going to make perfect summer drinking. Refreshing acidity with concentrated pear, apple and apricot flavours. Whilst primarily about crisp fruit characters there is a touch of minerality and almost waxy texture here.

A blend of 80% Vermentino and 20% Chardonnay grapes, vinified with cryo-maceration techniques to preserve the wine from oxidation. Harvesting is done by hand at dawn to maintain the characteristic varietal notes of these grapes, mostly coming from vineyards with sandy soil.

Terroir:-

Situated in the south west of Sardinia in an area known as Sulcis Meridionale, the award-winning Agricola Punica cellar is a joint venture between four leading figures in Italian wine. Agri Punica

Sebastiano Rosa, celebrated oenologist and winemaker at Sassicaia, Santadi Winery President Antonello Pilloni, legendary Tuscan wine consultant Giacomo Tachis and Sebastiano’s stepfather Marchese Nicolo Incisa Della Rocchetta, owner of the famous Tenuta San Guido Estate.

The 60 hectares of vineyards lie within the D.O.C. of Carignano del Sulcis though the wines themselves fall under the I.G.T. of Isola dei Nuraghi.

The name comes from the ancient stone towers built by the Nuragic civilization which shaped the island from the Neolithic age until the Roman era.

The ambition of the modern day Agricola Punica winery is to produce the very finest Sardinian wines which reflect the heritage of this great terroir combined with the expertise of modern vineyard practice and wine making.

Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean, after Sicily. Its culture, language, architecture, place names and of course grape varieties are all very different to those found on the mainland thanks to centuries of rule from different empires.

In fact, Italian grape varieties are almost nowhere to be found. Instead there is a wealth of French and Spanish varieties including Grenache (Cannonau in Sardinian) Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon and Vermentino.
